Talking Green Economy with Sir Partha Dasgupta (Cambridge University)
Economies are largely oblivious to environmental degradation or ecological scarcity. Economists would argue that this is because we are failing to value our 'natural assets'. So, one simple solution is to put a price on the services that our environment provides.
But, what are the practical steps for putting a price on nature? Would all of our ecosystems be given a price tag? What does it mean for communities around the world who depend on the environment for their livelihoods?
Sir Partha Dasgupta, Professor Emeritus of Economics at Cambridge University, sits down with us to explore what it all means. Do you agree with his arguments? What do you think? We want to hear from you!
